The 2013 Dave Campbell Texas Football Magazine coming to a store near you!

Press Release


The 54th installment of the southwest’s leading football source hits newsstands on friday

The annual summer edition of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine will soon be on racks (June 21) all across Texas! Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel is on the cover, fresh off his Heisman Trophy victory and the Aggies’ scintillating first year of SEC play. Pick up a copy to read about the unique challenges that face the state’s first returning Heisman winner since 1940s — and what must happen for Kevin Sumlin’s team to once again contend in the rugged SEC West.

I think everyone knew that Johnny was the only correct choice here — there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that he deserves it,” Stewart said. “So then the question became, ‘How do we tell his story in a fresh and interesting way?’, and ‘How do we best encapsulate who he is and what he represents in just one photo?’ He’s now one of the biggest figures in Texas Football history, and we wanted to make sure that status was well-represented.”

This annual magazine covers college and high school football in Texas as no other publication can. Among the standard features in the 2012 summer edition are:
  • The Preseason All-Texas College team (see addendum);
  • The annual Super Teams (see addendum) and Top 300
  • In-depth analysis of each in-state FBS program’s 2012 team, plus coverage of Texas’ FCS, DII, DIII and JUCO teams
  • The coveted Coverboy spot for every high school classification
  • Individual previews of more than 1,400 high schools in the state of Texas

New features for the 2013 Summer Edition include:
  • A collector’s-item pull-out poster of Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel
  • A redemption code for a free digital magazine from DCTF
  • Expanded coverage of each in-state FBS school’s 2014 recruiting classes
By-the-numbers roster breakdowns of each in-state FBS school
